Smartphone giant blackberry are back again this time with the introduction of their new phone called the “BLACKBERRY KEYone”.For blackberry fans who loved the original old bold fashion you would definitely love this new phone.

Now with BlackBerry hardware in the hands of TCL, the company behind Alcatel phones, BlackBerry has an opportunity to wow buyers with something unique. Sporting a physical keyboard, solid design, and a slew of BlackBerry’s built-in security features, the KEYone is the best phone for you.


The physical keyboard back and is the first BlackBerry handset to do since 2015’s Priv. This one is called a Smart Keyboard. The back of the phone has a rubbery grip material that hardcore BlackBerry keyboard fans will approve of ,the handset never feels like it’s going to slide out of your hands, plus the slim form means you can use it one-handed with relative ease.

The KEYone measures 149.1 x 72.4 x 9.4 mm  and the body of the KEYone feels remarkably solid, with a sturdy aluminum frame, high-quality-feeling textured faux-leather back, and has a tasteful, professional look.



The screen is an IPS LCD with a resolution of 1620 x 1080 and 434ppi and uses Gorilla Glass 4, it’s not as pixel-dense as a Quad HD screen, but it’s certainly sharp enough for enjoying YouTube videos and playing games.

TCL also does a nice job with screen brightness, and while the manual mode tops out a little bit short of what we like to see from our phones, the auto-brightness mode has a much higher maximum output.

Just above the display is the 8Mp front facing camera, while the lens on the rear is a 12Mp with the same sensor as the Google Pixel.


The blackberry keyone  will come with 3GB of RAM, and the phone’s powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 625 processor. 32 GB is the only built-in storage option available here, but if that isn’t enough for you, expandable storage via microSD is possible for up to an additional 2 TB.

The KEYone runs Android 7.1 Nougat but, like always, BlackBerry has loaded the phone with a wealth of custom features. You have access to all of the Google Play Store apps, plus a few enterprise-focused programs and interface tweaks.

BlackBerry Hub replaces the main SMS app and offers a single-pane-of-glass way for users to view and manage incoming messages and notifications from multiple applications.

There’s also the DTEK By BlackBerry app, which monitors your device security by continually performing a safety check. It scans every app you install for malware, and recommends certain steps to keep your device safe.


The bottom has a mic, a mono bottom-facing speaker that is impressively loud for speakerphone use, and a USB-C port. The look is rounded off with the nice touches of permanent capacitive navigation buttons and a fingerprint sensor in the spacebar key that works very well.

The top houses a 3.5mm headphone jack,in addition connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.2 (LE), NFC, and even an FM radio.


In the area of battery the phone comes with a massive 3,505mAh battery which benefits from the Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 fast charging and a special “boost” mode that can bring the phone from 0 to 50 percent charged in as little as 36 minutes.
